FacehuggerMember158 XPSep-07-2012 9:38 PMNice read indeed... [quote][b]The film features a hefty score of themes for discussion, including one of the most disturbing abortion scenes I’ve ever seen.[/b][/quote] It's weird that this feminist interpretation refers to it as an abortion when it's not (the film itself refers to it as a Cesarean). [quote][b]An interesting theme that is present in this film, but not the other Alien films is a profoundly religious one, the death of our makers. On Prometheus the death of a parent is the agent of destruction as each main character deals with the abandonment and rejection they feel from their creation and of course, their ensuring resentment towards that creator. Even the mission of the ship is designed to find our own creators and discover why they have abandoned us and why we were created in the first place, if we were just to be left to our own devices. The title of the film then becomes remarkably fitting (as I’m sure was intentional) since Prometheus was a Greek who stole fire from the Gods to give to humans, an act that lead to the humans advancement and eventual independence from their creators. Prometheus was brutally punished for his disobedience and his compassion, destined to suffer for eternity, however that doesn’t stop the continued progression of humanity. [/b][/quote] I particularly liked that commentary. Nicely put. [quote][b]That scene is apparently what pushed the film up from a PG-13 rating into an R; if the studio had wanted to ensure a PG-13 rating, the MPAA demanded that they cut the entire scene.[/b][/quote] Ah, that explains why they went with the R rating. Yeah, there's no cutting that scene. Easily the best, most memorable scene in the entire film. It was crucial.

OvomorphMember0 XPSep-08-2012 4:40 AM@Patient Leech - Yes the squid scene was one of the greatest scenes in Prometheus and also one of the hardest so it's a reason to put Prometheus on R (tho in here it's only 15+).
